Hideo Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear Solid series, left Konami in 2015 and shortly thereafter announced that he was teaming up with Sony to bring his new title Death Stranding to life. Below is a breakdown of the most notable.
"The Legend of 'Zelda: Breath of the Wild" got three big wins at The Game Awards. The Miramar map is available to play now. The game also now has an official date for its 1.0 formal release being December 20.
The World War Z trailer was light on details, but since it's being developed by TimeShift and Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary studio Saber Interactive, it may be safe to assume that it's a first-person shooter. The game is "coming soon" to Playstation4, Xbox One, and Steam. The game will be released for PlayStation VR, Oculus and Vive in 2018.
A full list of winners and nominees can be found at thegameawards.com/awards, save for the victor in Best Multiplayer Game which was not announced during the TGA ceremony nor via its Twitter account.
Battlegrounds didn't win any of the other awards it was nominated for including Best Ongoing Game (lost to Overwatch) and Game of the Year (lost to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild). As the trailer states it's, "Available now" releasing Thursday night.
Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice was an August release on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, praised for the adventure's intense delivery, its precise and effective audio design, and its nuanced treatment of a serious psychiatric disorder afflicting the game's main character. The game will be available in 2019 and it will take place in Egypt. The mode is available now for a short time until Sunday, December 17th.
Nintendo dropping another bombshell during the event with the announcement of the porting of the massively popular Bayonetta games for it's new console.
